Art by Martin See Tho
Sandra Choo

Martin See Tho was 32 when he became a wheel-chair bound victim of Machado Joseph Disease, an incurable degenerative disorder that robbed him of his career, dignity and gradually, all his physical abilities.

However, he persevered through all odds and adversity, and learned digital painting at age 36. The journey was never smooth for Martin, but through unwavering faith, arduous work and tenacity, he eventually emerged as a true victor and gained recognition as a Singapore Signature Artist in 2007. Martin passed away peacefully in 2009 at age 40, leaving behind a legacy of 160 digital artworks which he created during the most despairing last lap of his life.

This book is Martin’s poignant, intensely moving testimony of living life to the fullest till the very last moment visualised by his Art. It is a compilation of hope, optimism and immeasurable grit, made possible only by the sheer and unflinching love and conviction of a wife, caregiver, and soulmate, Sandra Choo.
